You wanna know what really irritates me? When a band pulls something like this. I get this album, and I've never heard of the band. Additionally, I'm very wary of Panic Button's abilities now that Ben Weasel isn't doing it anymore. Regardless, I have an open mind, I decide to give it a listen. .

You wanna know what really irritates me? When a band pulls something like this. I get this album, and I've never heard of the band. Additionally, I'm very wary of Panic Button's abilities now that Ben Weasel isn't doing it anymore. Regardless, I have an open mind, I decide to give it a listen.

Holy yes. Track one is amazing. It sounds vaguely like the Lillingtons, only a touch less gimmicky and the song is longer than anything the Lillingtons would do. Very good though. Track two, also quite stupendous. I am definately satisfied with this disc, and I have renewed faith in Panic Button's ability to put out good music. Track three is awesome as well, and so it was written: THE NEW YESTERDAY'S KIDS ALBUM IS GOOD!

Then I kept listening. The problem after track three was finished was pretty simple: they didn't have any more good songs left. Don't get me wrong, those first three tracks were spectacular, the kind of pop punk a man only dreams exists. Unfortunately, the opposite is the same for the nine other tunes on this release. Let's break it down in easy to read chart form:

TRACKS 1 THROUGH 3 = AWESOME
TRACKS 4 THROUGH 12 = BAD

This would have made an incredible EP, I can tell you that much.

well i hope their lillingtons sound is VERY vaguely, cuz I've never liked the Lillingtons, i think the vocals are hideous, and they're monotone.

i agree that not all the songs are as strong as they could be but 4 onwards are bad? come on, thats pretty harsh. overall it is a quality album

You can compare it to stink on rice.

Did you not read the review? THE LILLINGTONS only better, then worse.
